Album: J. Dilla – “Dillatroit”

Hip-hop heads know J Dilla production when it hits. Certain intangible quantities distinguish the Detroit pioneer’s work from that of just about anyone else. This is proven once more with Dillatroit, a new posthumous Dilla release courtesy of the J Dilla Foundation and its head, Ma Dukes. This project is decked out with cuts from The Lost Scrolls and Rebirth of Detroit. This time around, we get only instrumentals, no raps. Many complained in the past about the emcees chosen to rock out over some of these tracks. That’s not the case this time around. Listen to Dilla’s Dillatroit in full after the break.
